Summary

Joe Gufford has been a member of The Florida Bar since 1991. The Gufford Law Firm commitment is to provide exceptional client services that remain focused on results. We bring together attorneys and staff with decades experience. At The Gufford Law Firm, we believe that both our attorneys and our staff must be knowledgeable about the specific areas of law that we practice in. That is why we ensure that each of our attorneys and staff members are constantly taking Continuing Legal Education courses so that we are up to date on the latest developments in the law. Joseph Gufford has also been a lecturer on legal developments to other members of the legal community. Additionally, not only is Joseph Gufford familiar with Courtroom procedures and local judges, but staff members are as well, as they frequently assist Mr. Gufford at trial. When Mr. Gufford has a trial or a complex hearing, the paralegal assigned to your matter will also be present. This allows Mr. Gufford to focus on the judge and his presentation in the Courtroom as opposed to fumbling about for exhibits or case law. In each and every case involving a trial, Joe Gufford and his staff will prepare a trial notebook and a trial outline, that frequently becomes the guidebook for the trial. Not only is the trial notebook/outline helpful for the attorney but it frequently sets the pace and order of presentation of the evidence. The mere preparation of the trial notebook/outline forces the attorney and his staff to focus in on key issues long before the trial of the case. Ultimately, this process frequently results in a smoother and more precise presentation of the evidence.

  • Free Consultation
    We believe strongly that the potential new client of the firm needs to get to know us and vice versa. We have to feel comfortable that we can accomplish the client's goals and the client has to feel comfortable that we can do the same. We do not accept every case that comes through the door, but, we do take the time to properly evaluate the situation and advise the client accordingly. Typically, our initial consultations last between 1-2 hours. During this time, we determine the status of the case, the client's goals and whether we can accomplish those goals given the various factors that exist. Many law offices charge for their initial consultations. We don't. While that results in a lot of time spent by us at no charge, we feel that regardless of whether you hire us or not, you will feel good about the experience and not just had a "meet and greet" session.
